Nikon Historical Society Jason Schneider is perhaps the world's most famous expert on camera collecting.  Over the course of his long career he has been a photojournalist, a commercial photographer, and a camera test lab manager.  For 18 years he wrote his incredibly influential Camera Collector monthly column at the still deeply missed MODERN PHOTOGRAPHY magazine where Jason was also Editorial Director. Modern was followed by his 16 year stint as Editor-Chief of Popular Photography, then the world's largest imaging magazine. Along the way many of his Modern Camera collecting articles were republished in the wonderful 3 volume set JASON SCHNEIDER ON CAMERA COLLECTING.

Focusing on a wide range of interests, Jason has been an avid photography enthusiast, writer, and lecturer amazingly enough since his early teens.  He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Washington Square College of New York University, where he majored in English Literature, minored in Classics, and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. Schneiderís poetry and critical essays on poetry have been published in the NYU college literary magazine and in various collections.  He's currently working on a book on Emily Dickinson's poetry "Understanding Emily Dickinson. A Reader's Guide To The Enlightened Master."

Jason is an expert on most things photography:  no only camera collecting and analog photography, but also digital photography, the history of camera design and technology, the business of photography, what it is to be a photographer, and as he once proved to me, the best place to buy bratworst at Photokina in Cologne. If all of that was not enough, Jason is genuinely one of the nicest, most knowledgeable and interesting human beings you will ever likely have the good fortune to meet on the net.

"Extraordinary"
"Body of work"
"Stand alone"
...all interesting words when used in photography.

Adding "Extraordinary" to the post by Ned probably involved a wry smile and possibly inviting what they call "click bait".
A lot of images do sit better within a "body of work", and to have a "stand alone" like Helen mentioned really has to be something special which invokes a lot of feelings and emotions.

eg: i am posting an image by Martin Parr, which on its own is ok, nothing brilliant, just some in focus weed/flower and OOF people down below...for me i wouldn't give it a second look, but in the body of work "Amalfi Coast" that he has produced, this image sits well and belongs.

Cheers.

Modern Street without relying on the frozen gesticulation formula minus "not old world" is extra-ordinary




and minus "not B&W" is extra extra ordinary:


The longer they are shelved from contemporary view, the more extraordinary...yes...it's quite a word.

not a recent photo, but one of my favourites. Originally I cropped 16:9 in bw, but I've revisited it and I think I prefer this colour version at 2:3. It's still a crop; original was a grab shot @24mm-e with camera (LX3) at chest height. No time to do anything but react, I wasn't on the ball..

Title is "don't look back"

Not extraordinary and not even sure I would put it in my street pile. I tend to think of images about the moment when thinking about street but I don't like to pigeon hole anything and what i think is this many think is that.
Mark Town Ind. I think these might all have been torn down just days after this was shot.

This is my sister, begrudgingly posing for me when she last visited Ohio and we toured the old Ohio Penitentiary (site of Shawshank Redemtion). She works in the children's court system in another state, dealing daily with the difficult situations that pass through there. I haven't seen her since that visits two years ago.
